Xlite Shallow Octa softboxes create a unique, natural-looking light that is not easily replicated by traditional square or rectangular softboxes. These unique features make Octa softboxes ideal for portraiture and fashion photography. The rounded shape of an octa creates a natural, round catch light in the subjects’ eyes. Unlike traditional square or rectangular softboxes, octa softboxes do not have a long straight edge. This creates a wrapping effect that opens up shadows and creates a natural, gradual gradient from highlight to shadow. Octa softboxes are typically used as a main light, or as a soft fill light indoors or out.
Perfect for on-location shooting. It folds down like a regular umbrella but expands straight into a octa softbox for instant use, saving time over traditional softboxes which require rods and speed rings for assembly. The recessed front diffuser allows for more precise positioning and feathering of light. Included is a removable grid and mask to better control light spill in situations when accuracy is essential.
